Abstract

Media and others who claim inaccurately that Australia has a literacy crisis and that the ALLS (Adult Literacy and Life Skills survey) shows 46 per cent of Australians cannot read and write, exasperate literacy and numeracy teachers. In outlining how these claims are inaccurate [the author] provides us with some responses to the current hype around levels of literacy in Australia.
